The economic cycle is turning and investors of all stripes are reassessing which asset classes they are exposed to.

While private equity is sometimes regarded as a single asset class, in reality it is an umbrella term. At the “top” end, at least in terms of volumes of assets and size of deals, buyout funds may look vulnerable to rising interest rates and looming recession. With the end of “free cash”, the heavy leverage loads carried by buyout companies will raise their costs. Declining economic activity will apply further pressure, holding back the organic growth of mature companies.
